Laws to Go (A Quick Look on Philippine Election Laws)


New product

The 2010 National and Local Elections is arguably the most anticipated electoral exercise of the post-Aquino era as it highlights, albeit belatedly, the most signifi cant technological marvel of our time – computers. Amidst the opposition faced by the automation project of the Commission on Elections, we cannot remove the relevant impact of computerized voting and canvassing in eradicating cheating and graft and corruption at the precinct level. Computerization simply promises a solution to the much ridiculed election process of the Philippines.

With this compilation of selected election laws of the country, the authors aim to provide an immediate reference for all of those who have stakes, are participating, or are simply interested in the fi rst fully automated elections in the Philippines and beyond. The handy presentation of the book is designed to provide ease of reference and mobility – two basic requirements of lawyers on the go.

Exhaustive efforts were exerted to ensure the correctness of the language of all the laws and jurisprudence and in updating them. In fact, as of this writing, the Supreme Court came up with a decision holding that election offenses applicable to candidates, such as premature campaigning, take effect only upon the start of the campaign period (Penera v. Comelec, G.R. No. 181613, November 25, 2009). This decision was based on the third paragraph, Section 15 of Rep. Act No. 8436 as amended by Section 13 of Rep. Act No. 9369. We expect more rules and regulations to be promulgated by the COMELEC as the 2010 elections draw near. For this reason, among others, omissions may be present in this work and for these, the authors seek the readers’ indulgence.
